It was my first time at The Gate Marylebone though I’ve been to Hammersmith and Islington. I really loved the decor and the atmosphere. The service was speedy and efficient without being rushed . The menu was great as ever though I’d like to have seen more lower carb options.

I have been to Islington and Hammersmith many times but this was the first time at Marylebone. Service was ok. Ambience ok .....always felt more welcomed at the other two. This was a bit clinical, considering it was empty.
The food however, was excellent as always

A good restaurant especially in the vegetarian space. Enjoyed the food, but I do think it was on the expensive side (but that could be my snobbery with regards to veggie food).

Service was disjointed. They couldn't find my booking but squeezed us in. Service was friendly but unfocused. We sat down 10 minutes before the couple next to us and despite being ready to order, their order was taken before ours which irked me. Funnily our food came out before theirs so I shouldn't really complain.

I would go again with vegetarian friends but not sure they did enough for me to make me go back as repeat customer. In saying that - I would recommend a visit for the food alone.

I had been to The gate in Hammersmith years ago but was really impressed by how tasty the food was at The Gate Marylebone (not a vegetarian). Every dish was full of flavour and excellent. We will visit again.

Good food.
The service wasn't great. We ordered the chunky chips and it arrived at the same time as our dessert. Also we were put at the small table by the toilets so not the best either.

Good menu. Very good tastes and presentation. Good value and should maintain at it that.
Could introduce a few new dishes so that the regular person has something new to try. Perhaps specials for the week/month.
Marylebone staff are well informed on the food and help in making the right decisions.

Food was deliciously fresh, took a while to get to the table but we thought it was because the food was not pre-prepared, including the gorgeous honey and thyme sponge pudding - not a microwave in sight! Flavours were great and portion sizes very generous. We ordered 2 sides between 3 of us and couldn't finish them.
Service was pleasant enough - I tend to mark hard here - it was the note of insincerity that jarred with me.
Will definitely be back to try all the things I wanted to order.

food was nice when we eventually got it, the food was luke warm and our sides came out half way into eating our mains when they should be brought out together. they forgot to bring our wine out, one waiter did apologise and said 2 glasses were on the house but the wine he served us was disgusting and when we told the manager we didnt want to pay the discretionary 12.5% service charge he asked why but didnt apologise, just shrugged and held his hands open and said ok

I made a late booking via Open Table, about two hours before. When we got to the restaurant we were told that our booking did not exist. I understand these things happen but the staff seemed unwilling to help. We were eventually seated and handed some menus. It took a while to have our orders taken but a lady eventually came to serve us. Ten minutes after she took our order, she came back in a fluster and very abruptly told us she would need us to repeat our order again. Not a word of apology and you could almost hear her eyes roll despite it not being our mistake. The food was alright though the rotolo was very cold inside (like it had been taken out of the fridge—not sure if it was meant to be this way) but we could not be bothered sending it back at this point. It wasn’t a horrible experience but I’m certainly not in a hurry to return.

Food is fresh but the salad we ordered lacked seasoning and flavor. My friends like the aubergine miso but there aren't many options that are not tofu based.

To be honest,i was disappointed. The gate in Hammersmith was always indeed of my favourite restaurants in London even though i am not a vegetarian ( although i have not visited for several years as i moved away) so i was looking forward to the one in Marylebone. I thought the menu was very non inventive and standard, good quality but nothing special. Service was sporadic and a bit chaotic.

Anniversary dinner, didn’t have a table ready, ordered bread and olives but starters came first. Asked for olives and bread afterwards as olives came after starters, was questioned why I asked for a bottle instead of a glass of wine. Is hat because I’m wearing Alexander McQueen suit and have tattoos and I’m an influencer?

The main course and desert were excellent but the first course let the whole meal down. The crispy marinated tofu tasted neither crispy nor marinated and instead had the consistency and taste of a potato croquette. Sadly disappointing.

My daughter is vegan so she was very happy with the food. My only criticism is that £60 for a two-course lunch for two with one drink seems a little steep.

I was looking for a Vegan restaurant that looked like a regular (non wooden bench/hippy) place with great food and a bar, for a birthday treat for a family member. This was perfect. It has a lovely ambiance. One of my carnivorous group at the first mouthful of the Miso Glazed Aubergine looked up and said "wow! this is really nice"..and he wasn't wrong. The Red Thai Curry was gorgeous too. We were too full to sample the dessert menu. Will have to be next time. It's a really great place. I highly recommend.
